Congratulations Richard D Vansen

WinWin50 2017 Prize Winner

Rick Vansen was both shocked and extremely happy to learn of the news.

Rick designated the Sturgeon as it is his family’s first choice to go to for all of their healthcare needs. He cannot say enough about the excellent care provided when he needed it.

Rick recently purchased a house and with that came the issues of being a home owner – his car broke down shortly after purchasing his house so he needed to replace that, then his dishwasher and hot water heater went, so he’s had a rough go lately. The cheque he received erases all those issues!

This now makes Christmas that much better and his spring vacation plans can now be put back on!

WINNERS REACT

"We all wonder what how we would react when we hear that we’ve won the lottery. In summary – mine has been complete disbelief. And I mean disbelief – just ask my family and friends (and the bank teller who was requested to perform a “zero” count – Yes, Mrs. Lobo – there are that many zeros after the 5. Truly). And a lesson to all – don’t procrastinate. This is an amazing lottery that can give joy to your life as well as helping out within our health care system. Thank you so much WinWin50 Staff Lottery and all those involved. The sense of security this win has provided my family is priceless. And to my office mates who figure they are now out of luck – I did google “lightning strikes twice” and found out contrary to folk wisdom, lightning can hit the same spot (or almost the same spot) more than once. So here’s to lightning my friends!"

—   Natalie Lobo, Clinical Lead for Immunization Program Standards and Quality in North Zone.

WINNERS REACT

"It’s a great surprise but it hasn’t really sunk in yet. I never thought I would win. I do need some renovations done at home so maybe the money will help out with that."

—   Cleo Gaboury, Nutrition Services, Valleyview Health Centre.

WINNERS REACT

"I've worked with Alberta Health Services for 21 years and health care is a cause near and dear to my heart. I want to make sure I give back so care is there for our community when it's needed."

—   Sheryl Bell, Clinical Social Worker, Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital.

WINNERS REACT

"It’s a great surprise but it hasn’t really sunk in yet. I never thought I would win. I do need some renovations done at home so maybe the money will help out with that."

—   Tannis Dorscht, Program Coordinator, Academic Family Medicine at Calgary's South Health Campus.

WINNERS REACT

"It's important we continue working together in supporting our health care. I'm happy I'm part of this because it gives me the chance to help contribute to improving services in our communities."

—   Martina Lashta, Registered Nurse and Outreach Worker with the Mental Health Clinic in Red Deer.

WINNERS REACT

"We’re grateful for the lottery support to our community health care. The proceeds from the lottery will help fund needed equipment."

—   Rhonda Reid, Registered Nurse at the Olds Hospital and Care Centre.

WINNERS REACT

"It’s supporting my hospital and our patients that truly motivates me in participating in the lottery, and I really didn’t expect to win."

"My passion is senior care. I like working with seniors because they enrich our lives with their history and stories – we have so much to learn from them and they’re an important part of our community."

—   Annette Kyndt, Care Manager, Rising Sun Long Term Care, Oilfields Hospital in Black Diamond.

WINNERS REACT

"It’s the bigger picture that counts. So many people need help and I’m really happy to be part of such a great cause. It’s satisfying to know part of my payroll donations go to hospitals in Calgary where my family and I have had treatment in the past."

—   Glenda Milne, Clerk IV in Patient Registration at the Didsbury Hospital.

WINNERS REACT

"At first, I thought it was a family joke when I received my $50,000 phone call. As a busy mom of three I was excited to share the good news with my husband that we are now $50,000 richer!"

—   Stephanie Catudal, Community Health Facilitator in Health Promotion at Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.
